Choices: Part 4

Previously Part1, Part2, Part3


There are dreams. Some for which you would stake your life. Some achievable. Some worth. Some impossible. Some you wish had happened. Some you wish would never happen.
Do i have an advice? maybe no. maybe..
Well, the past is gone, I know that. The future isn't here yet, whatever it's going to be. So, all there is, is this. The present. That's it.

Mental Frames

Paul Buchheit writes...
For example, if you are interested in startups, but work in a big company, you are in danger. If you stay there too long, you will be drawn into the big company frame shared by the other "lifers". Startups will all seem too risky, frivolous, or impractical, and you'll spend the rest of your life in that big company (and posting bitter comments on TechCrunch).

Mark Pilgrim on patents...
The patent was original, it was innovative, and it was still shameful.
It’s hard to live up to your principles. If it were easy, your principles probably aren’t worth a damn anyway.

Days go on and on. They don't end...

Saw Taxi Driver this weekend. Twice. And as if that was not enough, it came in TV at night. Coincidence? I've been wanting to watch this movie for quite some time .. make that some years. I guess i saw some pics of this movie when i was in school. Right time to watch the right movie. The music haunts me ..

Guido says
Just because Java was once aimed at a set-top box OS that didn't support multiple address spaces, and just because process creation in Windows used to be slow as a dog, doesn't mean that multiple processes (with judicious use of IPC) aren't a much better approach to writing apps for multi-CPU boxes than threads.

AACS in limelight again

Kevin Rose writes

But now, after seeing hundreds of stories and reading thousands of comments, you’ve made it clear. You’d rather see Digg go down fighting than bow down to a bigger company. We hear you, and effective immediately we won’t delete stories or comments containing the code and will deal with whatever the consequences might be.

If we lose, then what the hell, at least we died trying.
